I've noticed a more praying mantis this year in Annapolis than I feel like I've ever seen.  Also saw a couple Luna Moths.  We had the Brood X cicada scourge this year, and since I think all insects are going nuts.  Seeing a Mantis is always somehow cool
Both at the front door to my apartment:

San Antonio weather has been strange this year. We had a newsworthy snowstorm in February, then this summer was extremely rainy (no drought restrictions for the first time in ages) and relatively cool (temperatures have yet to reach 100F/38C, which hasn't happened since they started keeping records). So this spring, we were certain the snow had killed everything in our yard, but the spring and summer brought all the plants back with a vengeance.  Yay for local plants...
